That's the solution. See InstanceTransforms element.

Subject: [wix-users] How to install multiple instances of the same application using MSI
I have a requirement to allow multiple instances of same application and it should support major upgrade aswell.
I can do multiple installation by altering product code, upgrade code & product name. But, altering upgrade code will not support major upgrade.
I guess 'Authoring Multiple Instances with Instance Transforms' is the only option. More info on this are available in https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa367797(v=vs.85).aspx
I am unable to find any examples on this transforms. Can anyone provide example project on this? else can anyone suggest a way to achieve my requirement?
